What is your approach to advising?
As a first generation college student, I'm especially concerned about Cal students who are also among the first in their families to pursue higher education. I try to help students think of what questions to ask, as college is so different from K-12 education. My goal is to help students map out a holistic plan for their college years.

What is your approach to advising?
